  • Description

    Schubert's Piano Sonatas, after a century of neglect, are now regarded as being among the most profound musical works ever written. Here Stephen Hough tackles the last, perhaps the greatest, of them—D960—in a performance of extraordinary depth and beauty. Also included on this well-filled are the earlier masterpiece, D784, and the almost unknown D613 Unfinished Sonata which nonetheless contains much vintage Schubert and some wildly experimental writing. Though entering a highly competitive field, this disc has nothing to fear from its rivals; these are performances sure to join the ranks of the very greatest.
